Almost every Indian household has a string of pickles made with different foods, lining up the kitchen shelves. Be it plain roti sabzi or chhole bhature, pickle or achaar is a must to spice up any typical Indian meal. Here is another pickle you can add to your collection. Karonda pickle is made from a type of berry fruit called karonda or cranberries. It is green in colour when unripe and turns red when ripe.

Karonda is also great for heart health as it helps in managing cholesterol levels.
